HBO® presents the Season Two premiere of Hung®, the hit comedy series from Colette Burson and Dmitry Lipkin (The Riches), and starring Thomas Jane, Jane Adams and Anne Heche. Set in the (still) recession-plagued suburbs of Detroit, Hung continues to revolve around the unorthodox efforts of divorced teacher/coach Ray Drecker (Jane) to generate extra cash – by selling his "winning tool" to desperate women.]]>

The premise, that Ray Drecker is a high school coach (getting laid off in this season) by day, and reluctant male prostitute by night, totally sparks my interest. Current, provocative, a story seed that can grow and blossom in any number of interesting ways. However the writers just aren't going anywhere at all with this. The shock value of an average Joe using his biggest endowment to earn a salary wore off in Season I. We saw Ray awkwardly executing his first few jobs, we saw him come to terms, sorta, with his status as male prostitute, we saw Tanya the poet totally get off on the vision of herself as a pimp. Enter the evil conniving woman who tries to take over the business for a bit of intrigue and stress. And that... is pretty much where we have Season II as well. And the first few episodes of Season III. Nothing much is happening that's new, and they've explored most of the avenues opened in the first several episodes of the entire series. There simply isn't any freshness in the story line.
Another problem I have is the relative sexiness of the show. I'm a woman - the target client of this fictional male gigolo - and what I'm seeing is more of a male-fantasy version of a man giving women what they want so much they're willing to pay $600 a pop for it. For instance one recurring theme is that Ray drops his pants to show a woman his size, and they immediately become obsessed with having him. [A thousand online dating clients with cell phone cameras will tell you that this approach does not seem to actually entice your average woman] I'm not really getting the sex appeal.Read more ›
"Hung" deals with the adventures of a good-looking basketball coach named Ray (played to perfection by mega-stud Thomas Jane) living in a suburb of Detroit. In order to make ends meet he enters the escort business as he possess a rather large bodily "tool" that lots of women find most attractive. The series deals with his interactions with his former wife, played beautifully by Anne Heche, as well as his two children. The second season mainly deals with Ray's involvement with his two female pimps, Lenore and Tanya, who both have different ideas in making Ray a huge success.
